Elmander set for Trotters return against Gunners

Bolton's record signing Johan Elmander could return to action against Arsenal on Saturday after a month's lay-off.

A hamstring injury has meant the Sweden striker has made just two Barclays Premier League appearances since his £10million summer move from Toulouse.

The 27-year-old scored a debut goal in the season opener against Stoke but the Trotters have not won since and manager Gary Megson would like him up front alongside Kevin Davies for the Gunners' visit.

Megson said: "Whether the game comes too soon or not we will have to see after he has had a full week's training.

"From his point of view he is getting a lot closer. We brought him in for certain reasons, not just his goals - although we expect him to get goals.

"It's his work-rate, getting hold of the ball. The game he played against Stoke, our stats were apparently the highest they have been in seven years for a centre forward getting hold of the ball. Any side is going to miss that.

"Davo (Davies) has gone up front since then and he has done really well. He has been our best player this season on a consistency basis.

"It would be great to have Johan back in the team with Davo also in there. Hopefully that is the case.''

Defender Matt Taylor remains on the sidelines with a broken toe but is due to see a consultant early next week to determine when he can return to training.

Gary Cahill also sits out Saturday's encounter as he completes a two-match suspension for his sending-off in the Carling Cup defeat by Northampton.

Bolton have collected just four points from their four Premier League outings in an indifferent start to the campaign.

Megson was especially disappointed with the performance in last week's 2-1 defeat by Fulham but expects his men to put that behind them this weekend.

He said: "They all have that commitment, and that's why it was so disappointing, the Fulham game.

"There have been times when we have had poor results, all teams have poor results, but it is the manner in which you lose. We just didn't do enough to ever get anything out of the game.

"We have now got this game on Saturday which is an opportunity to try to right the wrongs of last week.''
